Summer Kickoff & Monday Made It!

Hey guys and dolls, how's it going?

Can you believe it, I'm blogging two days in a row?!?!?!  

Hopefully I can keep up with it, I've missed it terribly!

It's officially summer over here, and you know what that means?!?!

Monday Made It with Tara!!

One of my main projects is to clean up my house, but no one wants to see that travesty!

Moving on, I bought myself a Silhouette Cameo last year, and I've only done a few

projects with it. My goal is to use it a lot more for the upcoming school year, 

and around the house. 

Today's Monday Made It is going to be simple, 

because I need to go to the store to get supplies, go figure!! 

Last year, one of my MMI was the flower pot

to hold all of my dum dum suckers. Remember this?

Well, I kinda cracked the top when it fell off of my desk,

but once you put the suckers on top, you couldn't tell.

Then, we moved schools (more on that later),

and the bottom rim was broken in the move. 

It looks sooooo sad now!! So, I just HAD to make another one!!

I've been learning how to layer vinyl, so I thought this would be the 

perfect opportunity!

I also added some flowers on the back.

In my classroom, I love to let my kiddos use pointers, 

especially in the big book and pocket chart centers. 

I would love to also implement a read and write around the room center,

so I bought several pointers, and I hope to make some more!

The small pointers that I have, it's easy enough to put them somewhere,

but for the larger ones, they're not going to fit on my desk.

So, I bought a cheap trash can from Wal-Mart, and I decided to label it.

Once again I layered the vinyl, and voila!

I tried to decorate the rest of it, but I didn't like the way it looked,

so I took it off. 

Now I gotta see what my next projects are going to be, 

especially after I get some supplies!

Off to the gym, talk to you guys later!!!


  1. Hooray for summer! Cleaning is my number one goal too, lol. I've been doing a room each day since we got out! I love working with vinyl and you will be addicted quickly!

  2. Haha! Your house comment cracked me up:) I feel the same that's going to be my main focus for this month at least. If you could see it now you might cry with me....the hubs started jack hammering up the tile in the kitchen! Hot mess! Love your projects! Thanks for linking up:)
